GOSH Awards Master of Ceremonies

Stephanie Stricklen

As a Northwest native, Steph Stricklen is thrilled to return to the 2019 Oregon GOSH Awards as your emcee. After more than 20 years on KGW-TV, she now works in several sectors, including air shows and aviation, both fields where people take occupational safety very seriously. When she’s not testing out what it feels like to hang upside down in an aerobatic plane, she also writes, serves on several boards, works for an augmented reality startup, and hosts several comic cons.
